Jazz Festival set to swing at Noosa

Get ready for Noosa and all that Jazz.

For jazz lovers, there is no better place to enjoy the end of winter than the popular holiday destination Noosa, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast; visitors will be in for a treat at the Noosa Jazz Festival, which brings together leading Australian traditional jazz musicians who are among the world’s best.

The Festival’s centrepiece event, held at The J Theatre in the heart of Noosa, runs from Thursday, 31 August to Saturday, 2 September, featuring some of Australia’s best individual jazz musicians in bands and ensembles, creating an exciting program of improvised traditional jazz; the Friday concert is an afternoon matinee.

It starts on Sunday afternoon, 27 August, at Noosa Jazz Club’s home for its monthly concerts, The Majestic Theatre, Pomona, one of the best live music venues around, featuring members of Melbourne’s famous band, The Syncopators.

Jazz ensembles will entertain diners at luncheons and dinners at participating restaurants at Sunshine Beach, Hastings Street, Noosaville, and the Tewantin Marina. Musicians on board two sunset ferry cruises will entertain diners before disembarking at the Noosa Marina for dinner and a jazz concert on Tuesday evening. The festival wraps up on Sunday afternoon, 3 September, with an exciting free concert at the Riverstage, Noosaville, for visitors and families celebrating Father’s Day.
